I have given a number of public talks on science, prison education, and music.
An example of a public science talk is my ‘Future of Plate Tectonics’ presentation given to the Geological Society in October 2018:

Writing for The Conversation
My first piece for The Conversation discussed the theory of plate tectonics at 50 years old, touching on the role of previous plate boundaries, the origin of plate tectonics, the role of large chemical blobs at the core-mantle boundary… and what the future might hold.
This Conversation article was also re-published by the following websites:
The piece was also directly translated into Spanish – without the use of a translator. Philip Heron becomes Felipe Garza as a result.
My second piece, published in 2019, focussed on the prison education work and my course Think Like A Scientist.
The article was reprinted in the I newspaper and the Metro.
Media attention for Think Like A Scientist:
BBC Radio Tees – 15th May 2019
The Sun newspaper
Media attention for Nature Communications paper (Heron et al., 2016)
Our Nature Communication paper (June 2016) received global coverage, as shown below.
With a direct link to the superb comments section.
University of Toronto Arts and Science Magazine:
Widespread coverage on social media in Japan for work regarding mantle lithosphere and plate tectonics.
Work has been covered in India, also.
